Students Working with the Homelessness ProjectThe 8th grade  Global Connections students as part of their curriculum were learning about Global Issues and how to turn an issue into an opportunity and make a difference. After a survey, the class stated that the issue they were most concerned about was Homelessness.

After deciding to make care packages for the homeless, the 8th grade Global Connections class collected more than 60 gallon size bags filled with travel size toiletries, individually packed snacks and water, socks and some decided to add inspirational messages. Each bag was made to benefit one person.

After collecting all the bags, the students who had donated the most bags were invited to accompany our school social worker Mrs. T. Smart and the Global Connections teacher Mrs. A. Mandjiny to the Fayetteville Rescue Mission. They donated the collected items and were able to have a long discussion with the Executive Director Mrs. Thompson to learn more about Homelessness and the relief actions provided by the Rescue Mission.

This meeting according to the words of one of the student was “eye opening” as, although knowledgeable about the problem, none of them knew its implication and ramifications in our local community.

Starting from a lesson on Global Issues, the students have learned that each issue provides an opportunity to make a difference. All the students who went to the Rescue Mission are intent on continuing to make a difference, not only by making more bags to distribute to needy people individually, but in exploring other avenues to help.

After returning to class, the students presented their experiences to the class and were able to motivate others who were not really convinced that an individual can make a difference and it only takes one step to get started.

The School Improvement Team oversees the School Improvement Plan.  School Improvement Planning is more than a plan, it is a framework for change. The plan, itself, is simply a map that identifies the school’s destination and requires both decision-making and action from a variety of stakeholders to reach that destination in the most direct route.  The Gray’s Creek Community and parents are welcome to attend the first meeting for the 2017-2018 school year on Friday, June 16 from 8:30 – 3:30 located in the Gray’s Creek Middle School Media Center.
